Preserving and growing wealth in an era of uncertainty

Last year’s symposium took place in the immediate, and somewhat chaotic, aftermath of the United Kingdom’s decision to split from the European Union. In keeping with the theme of geopolitical tensions the 2017 meeting will take place in the shadow of one of the most divisive US elections in history, as well as both German and French elections where a resurgent far right is capitalising on the migration crisis and continued low Eurozone growth. Meanwhile investors must also continue to navigate markets distorted by central bank intervention, and where risks no longer provide the rewards they once did. The 2017 European Single Family Office Symposium will focus on how investors can navigate these uncertain times, source new investment ideas, and deliver long-term sustainable growth.
